This book offers a balance among studies of regional dialects, language variation, and historical change. This new edition of Dialects and Language Variation contains only six essays from the First Edition; the 25 new articles cover regional dialects, dialect theory, and social dialects. The book requires no technical expertise.

This Second Edition provides a comprehensive set of readings for both the beginning and advanced student of dialects, language variation, and sociolinguistics. With more than 80% of new material, Dialects and Language Variation, Second Edition takes into account recent work in theoretical linguistics and concerns with social uses. Despite these innovations, this book continues the First Edition's balance among regional and social dialects, language variation, and social change. Its contributors prove that the correlations of overt language manifestations with place and social class are both significant and revealing.
-- Contains a comprehensive selection of balanced articles that cover dialects, language variation, and historical change
-- Fully updated; includes a majority of new material since publication of the first edition
-- Written in non-technical material, valuable to both beginning and advanced students
-- Examines the correlations between language manifestations and social class
